Fans of boy band One Direction were left in a frenzy of despair on Thursday when they learnt that the group ‘will never get back together’.
Groupies listening to Nick Grimshaw’s last ever Radio 1 Breakfast Show were left shaken to the core as the outgoing morning host blithely stated that there’s ‘not a chance’ the band will ever get back together, after going on hiatus in 2015.
Chatting to his former producer, Fiona Hanlon, Grimshaw, 33, said: ‘When we started this show [One Direction] were all together as a five piece. Do you think they’ll ever get back together?
Answering his own question, he went on: ‘No, not a chance, it’s not happening is it?’
This sent fans of the band who happened to be listening at the time into meltdown – flocking to Twitter to announce their disgruntlement
So @grimmers just said on his last breakfast show that one direction getting back together was “never going to happen”. Thank you for literally ruining my life,’ one fan raged, with someone replying: ‘What the hell is wrong with him? Why suddenly is he speaking like he is the 1D’s pr chief?’
Someone else typed: ‘Grimmy just said he didn’t think 1D would get back together again. Thanks for putting that out there pal
